Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia has officially launched the enhanced 2017 Triton that boasts significant improvements in safety, premium features and now comes with a whopping 200,000km or 5-year warranty.
In terms of its overall looks, the Triton now receives new features that gives it a more rugged and bolder image. A dark chrome grille now adorns the bold front end, while new design side steps improve entry and egress.
Automatic bi-xenon HID headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights on VGT variants provide outstanding illumination for the road ahead, as well as a striking signature look. The Adventure X variant takes the rugged theme further with 17-inch dual-tone alloy rims and a front bumper shield extender.
The latest Triton’s cabin has been updated with a new four-spoke multi-function steering wheel with audio, Bluetooth, cruise control, and a new instrument cluster. The VGT Adventure variant also receives an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat for comfort and convenience in addition to leather seats and a reverse camera to assist in parking.
The enhanced Triton also gets a big boost in safety and now scores the maximum rating of 5-stars in the ASEAN NCAP crash test (NCAP 5-Star: Applicable for Adventure variants only) with the availability of 7 SRS airbags (Applicable for Adventure variants only), consisting of front, side and curtain airbags, plus driver’s knee airbag. This full suite of airbags helps to cushion all occupants in the event of a collision.
Also new to the enhanced Triton is the Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC) system (Applicable for VGT variants only), a safety net that assists in keeping the vehicle in control during over-steer and under-steer situations or slippery and rugged conditions, by maintaining traction.
Under the hood, power is supplied by the latest 2.4-litre MIVEC turbodiesel engine with Variable Valve Timing Technology, coupled with Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT). It produces a total output of 181PS and 430Nm of torque and boasts 15% better fuel efficiency compared to the previous 2.5-litre engine.
Powertrain options include a 5-speed automatic transmission with manual mode and a new 6-speed manual transmission for the VGT MT. Mitsubishi’s renowned 4WD system, switchable through the Easy Select knob with shift-on-the-fly, provides various drive modes for any terrain or weather. The Triton is also nimble in the urban jungle with best-in-class turning radius of just 5.9m (5.7m for 2WD).
Completely Built-Up (CBU) from Mitsubishi Motors’ global production hub in Thailand, the enhanced Triton is the only pick-up* truck that is offered with 200,000 km or 5-years warranty for an ultimate peace of mind.
